Bewitched Historical Tour
"We were in the Salem area for a week - first time visiting Boston/Salem. We had a walking tour almost every night in Salem. The Bewitched tour was the best one we did. Our tour guide- I think her name was Sarah- was wonderful. I felt badly for her as we were the only two people that showed up. Nice for us, as we got a private tour, but not as good for her. She must be one of the foremost experts in the world at walking backwards! :) She walked backwards almost the entire tour; she is very animated and obviously passionate about the history of Salem. We enjoyed it tremendously. Many of the tours we did were similar in content, although diverging somewhat on facts- however, I realize that there are gaps in the available content /knowledge base of what happened over 300 years ago. Sarah was head and shoulders above the rest though for her enthusiasm and knowledge. And she gave us some great tips on where to eat, including Red's, which was as fabulous as she said. Very enjoyable."..."
